The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

GIFT Project-Phase I.

Gun, Yael

The Goal of GIFT is to reduce recidivism of women on probation for prostitution using evidence-based best practices to remediate the issues leading women to involvement in prostitution. The purpose of the CURA funded GIFT Project - Phase I was to finalize the design of the GIFT Project in order to measure the degree to which all planned project components are currently being executed. The objectives for this summer project was to compile an annotated bibliography of best practices for working with women in prostitution and to evaluate the current functioning of GIFT through participant observation of the GIFT project in action at 1201 East Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN. The data was gathered to evaluate how closely the program was following the organizing principles, operating under the program logic model, and to find possible service gaps to be addressed as GIFT moves forward. Participant observation data was collected from May 26 2008 through August 11, 2008.
